Hey Oscar Wilde! You Think You Knew Women, Huh?

Oscar Wilde said, “Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood.”

A great quote, no doubt. But I beg to differ.

Women are meant to be loved, THEN understood.

Why?

Because if you try to understand one before you love her, you will most probably give up mid-way. It takes a lot of time and effort to get to really know a woman. But it is well worth it in the end, isn’t it?

  1. Hmmmm! I am having difficulty with this! Oscar Wilde’s quote was simply his sense of humor. Your quote however “Women are meant to be loved, then understood” is puzzling because it is saying that you can love another person without understanding them. I would doubt that love could be a long term state if you do not understand your partner. In fact the majority of “breakups” are simply because of a lack of understanding of a partner.

    Typically love and lust (especially in immediate post-puberty years) are confused which is demonstrated by the declaration of love which is immediately followed by a desire for intimacy. I can accept that a physical attraction needs no understanding, but to say that love (assumed to be meant in the lifetime commitment sense of the word) needs no understanding of the partner is not logical.

    If you give up on somebody when you try to understand them (your words), then there has to be a reason for giving up. Once that reason is identified, one would have to ask “Do I want to love this person, or do I just want to have sex with them?” There is a huge difference.

    Just some thoughts.

    1. Agree with what you’ve said on all counts. However, what I want to say is that it takes time and effort to truly understand a woman. So being in love with her is a must to get to that place. Actually, this is applicable to just about any person…we have to give people time to get to really know them.That and patience. I hope things are clear now :)
